Testosterone is a male sex hormone that affects more than just sex drive.
It is also responsible for
Bone and muscle health,
And hair growth.
Testosterone secretion reduces as a person grows older, as well as from chronic illnesses. Hypogonadism, also called low testosterone is often medically treated to prevent future health problems.
An overall balancing of hormones is important to manage testosterone levels. This means consuming a well-balanced, nutrient-dense diet.
Being mindful of the total intake of foods containing hormones or hormone-mimicking nutrients, such as phytoestrogens, is recommended to achieve improved testosterone levels.
Some studies have shown these nutrients may have an effect on overall hormone balance.

Two nutrients that are especially important to your diet are vitamin D and zinc, both of which are precursors for making testosterone.
